IDEAS for a name for a York locomotive have been rolling in.

The Press appealed for readers to send suggestions in after rail operator East Coast decided to revive the tradition of naming locomotives on the Edinburgh to London route.

Latest suggestions for names, which must have a particular relevance to York, have included Ebor Rose, HRH Duke of York, The Duchess, Saint Margaret Clitherow and the York Flyer.

Others included Lord Esher, who carried out a study of conservation in York in the 1960s and John Shannon, who led the Civic Trust.

Readers will be invited to vote for a winner from a shortlist.

To make a suggestion, email or write to Mike Laycock, The Press, 76 to 86 Walmgate, York, YO1 9YN before Saturday.
